Do not buy AoT: Gold Edtion from Best Buy. I had been told multiple times that the copy they sold worked, so now, after going and buying it today-inspected it over 100% for all those 3rd party sellers (ubisoft, valusoft, xplosive)-and opening it up to check the CD Key I find that it is the same as the stupid copy I got at Target.

I have now spent a total of $90 on this game (initial price from when the game was still relatively new: $50, and then two $20 versions that are completely useless) and am now rather pissed.

Bottom line: I think the only place I have any confidence in buy from now is Amazon and that is all I would reccomend to anyone else.

Point 1. I am too lazy.
Point 2. I don't know where to write it to.
Point 3. Point 1 dictates why I am not finding out where to write the letter to.

Also, I don't know what version of the game mine is cuz i can't find it on the box or on any manuel or anthing so your assumption that it is Ubisoft may be correct or it may not, idk.

Okay, ty, no longer a matter of effort, more a matter of having the time to do it; will get back on this.

Edit: Wait, I still don't know that it is a Ubisoft version as I can't find any identifaction anywhere on the box or the manuel; where does it say on your box/manuel?

The CD key itself should be enough proof. they are all the same if they are ubisoft/best buy etc.

I seriously doubt they need/care about more proof than that.

if they really have started to request proof of purchase just send them a picture of the box/anything else they ask for.

Most people i've talked to about it said they had it all fixed in less than an hour (and by that probally less than 15 minutes in most cases) on the phone.

I know it's a pain in the ass for people who are lazy, but it's the only way you can get a working first hand copy now a days.

STOP BUYING MULTIPLE NEW COPIES hopeing to find one that works. they will all have the same problem.

Why don't people ask the shop (or send an email to the online store if you're buying online) to open up a box and check if the CD-Key is the one you already have before buying it?

Take my love, take my land, take me where I cannot stand.
I don't care, I'm still free, you can't take the sky from me.
Take me out to the black, tell them I ain't comin' back.
Burn the land and boil the sea, you can't take the sky from me.
There's no place I can be, since I found Serenity.
But you can't take the sky from me...
